CINCINNATI — Speedy outfielder Billy Hamilton became a free agent when the Cincinnati Reds failed to offer a 2019 contract by Friday’s deadline.
Hamilton, 28, hit .236 with four homers and 29 RBIs this year as his stolen base total dropped to 34. He swiped 56 bases in 2014 and increased his total by one in each of the next three seasons.
Hamilton had a $4.6 million salary on the last-place Reds, who went 67-95. He would have been eligible for free agency after next season.
Cincinnati also failed to offer contracts to outfielder-first baseman Jordan Patterson, outfielder Aristides Aquino and catcher Juan Graterol.
